  • To make the marinade, place yogurt, onion, garlic, lime juice, lemon peel, lemon pepper and paprika in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. Set aside.
  • Rinse the chicken under cold water, and pat dry with paper towels. Add the chicken pieces to the marinade mixture, and toss until all the pieces are well coated.
  • Place the chicken pieces and the marinade in a resealable bag, expelling as much air as possible. Seal the bag, and lay it in a flat container for at least 1 hour in the refrigerator, turning the bag occasionally to evenly distribute the liquid.
  • While the chicken is marinating, place the corn flakes in a large resealable plastic bag. Cover with a kitchen towel, and use a rolling pin to crush the flakes into fine crumbs.
  • Add the thyme, poultry seasoning, garlic salt, paprika and sesame seeds to the corn flake crumbs, seal the bag, and shake to mix thoroughly. Pour the mixture into a pie pan or other shallow dish, and set aside.
  • Spray two large nonstick baking sheets with 2 coats of cooking spray. Remove the chicken pieces from the marinade, and roll each piece in the corn flake mixture, coating well. Arrange the pieces in a single layer on the baking sheets, and spray the tops lightly with the cooking spray.
  • Bake on the center rack of a preheated 400°F oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork and no longer pink when cut with a knife. During baking, turn each piece every 10 to 15 minutes to insure even browning. Serve hot.
